gingerbread houses and mexican food...

last night chris and i had a few couples from the neighborhood over for a very serious gingerbread house decorating contest. i was originally going to cook all kinds of stuff but woke up and decided to have it catered (best move ever). we had rubios tacos with all the trimmings, mexican coke and of course cupcakes.

please forgive my photos, i didn't check my settings and they were all kinds of wonky. in fact some didn't turn out all together. sad.

this was ours. just a modern little cabana complete with a couch and a coke machine!

nicole's turned out great after a really wobbly start...

the romney's won the vote. the photo doesn't do justice. it was raised up with a stream flowing underneath. amazing.

the london's was pretty hilarious but didn't quite stay together :(

i am so sad my photo of the perry's amazing house with rain deer cutouts didn't even come close to turning out and also the one i took of the donahoue's house that they constructed in 5 min. oh well. there's always next year.

i love christmas time :)
